If you like, you can marinate the wings in the seasoning blend for several hours before grilling them, to give them more flavor. This is optional but marinating is always a nice way to make the taste richer.
The oregano, cumin, garlic and chili give the chicken a fragrant aroma and flavor, and you can serve these with lemon wedges if you like, as well as perhaps some cornbread and coleslaw. This recipe will feed 2 if it is the main dish, or 3 or 4 if people will be eating other meat too. If you are having a cookout you might like to cook some steaks, burgers and these wings, in which case people will have a steak or burger plus a couple of wings rather than a whole plateful.
Leftover wings will keep for a couple of days anyway, so just put them in an airtight container and refrigerate until required. These are good for box lunches or picnics. Although the fact these are grilled makes them a great dish for the spring or summer, you can also make spicy chicken wings during the cooler months.
Either be brave, wrap yourself up warm and use the grill, or stay in your warm kitchen and cook them in the oven or on the stove if it is too cold to venture outside.
